Is your favourite wrestler Sgt.Slaughter?
No but Slaughter is one of my favorites, I just remember how big of a deal that fued was. Hulkamania and Slaughter/ Sheik hit at the same time and it was WWF off to the races.
They ran a USA special featuring Shjiek/Slaughter it was massive and exposed a lot of folks to the WWF. People who did not care about wrestling they just wanted to see an American kick the crap out of Sheik (this was the kayfabe era).
They were selling out two venues a night for months. Reagan had Slaughter at the White House and although the fued only lasted half a year, it made an impact.

Yeah1993, I started to include that one myself. Mainly because that is considered by fans across the world as the trademark Lawler fued. But even I could not justify that. While the fued was great, and it had serious heat, it still felt to me as a fan here in that area, that Jimmy Hart was a more significant foe and the Lawler Hart fued was more important to the mythos of this area.
